About IGD


What is it like to work for IGD

Leadership
Leadership
The project to create and share the vision for IGD with the entire team. The chief executive and senior directors shared the vision with small groups of employees providing the opportunity for each employee to discuss and ask questions allowing them to fully understand what it meant for them.

Wellbeing
Wellbeing
IGD provides a freshly prepared two course lunch which is fully subsidised. This is a great benefit to all staff and is a great opportunity to encourage healthy eating. During the year different campaigns have been run highlighting the value of low salt diets, 5 a day and diets low in saturated fats. These activities are run in conjunction with careful menu planning demonstrating different food choices. During saturated fat awareness week all colleagues were offered the opportunity to have their blood pressure checked.

Giving Something Back

IGD have several charity days throughout the year which they support e.g. Children in Need, Red Nose, Eve Appeal, Macmillan Appeal, Jeans for Genes, Alzheimer's Society. Money is raised through dress down days, cake sales and raffles and IGD will match the sum collected on the day. To date in 2013 they have raised over £2,000.
